What Are Dentures?

The term "dentures" is a broad one. Dentures simply refer to replacements for missing teeth. They can be fixed, supported by implants, or removable. Some replace just a few teeth, and some are full sets of artificial teeth. The type of denture you get will depend on many different variables – your condition, health factors, and preferences.

Choosing whether to use flipper teeth is a purely personal decision. We encourage patients to look at the potential downsides and weigh them against the advantages before they make a choice.

Traditional Full Dentures

Traditional dentures completely replace all the teeth in your mouth. They consist of a removable appliance with prosthetic teeth surrounded by artificial gums and tissues.

Full Denture Advantages

772 Dental Implant Icon

A full set of missing teeth will typically distort and concave the cheek muscles inward toward the mouth. Unfortunately, this visually alters your appearance to seem much older than you are. Luckily for you, full dentures solve that problem and keep your cheek muscles looking normal.

Dental care is relatively easy, and they are simple to remove.

Full dentures will help you achieve a complete set of uniform teeth. Will help aid in chewing foods that you typically wouldn't have been able to bite on without.

Traditional dentures are more affordable than implant-supported dentures.

Full Denture Disadvantages

These dentures can come loose, slip out of place, and make embarrassing clicking noises. A dental adhesive is required and mostly reapplied throughout the day to keep the full dentures in place.

772 Dental Implant Icon

Some people do not like that they need to be removed at night, and for cleaning.

772 Dental Implant Icon

Sometimes the process to make the denture molds and fit them to your mouth could be lengthy. In the meantime, some patients opt to have temporary dentures while they wait.

772 Dental Implant Icon

Full denture repairs and replacements are common and can add up in costs over time.

[Keep In Mind] Depending on the situation, Dr. Horan will almost always recommend dental implants over dentures for many reasons not contained in this article. Learn more information about whether you are better off with Dental Implants by clicking Dental Implants vs. Dentures.

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable partials are ideal when you have a few natural teeth still available on the upper or lower part of the mouth. They vary in design based on what will work for you. Partial dentures can consist of a metal framework that clasps onto your existing teeth, complete with replacement teeth and a gum-colored base.

Snap on dentures port st lucie types of artificial teeth stuart florida

Snap-on Dentures

At least four dental implants are inserted into the bone when using snap-on dentures. Sometimes, there are anchors placed inside of the denture appliance so the wearer can snap them in and out. Other times, they are screwed in place and are only removed by your dentist during cleaning and maintenance.

Snap-on Denture Advantages

Immediate (One Day) Dentures

These are exactly what they sound like. Instead of having to wait for your new molded dentures again (including possible multiple fitting/adjustment appointments), these dentures are molded to your mouth right before your extraction and fitted immediately afterward.
